Default Gun show next weekend, Mississippi Coast Coleseum

In Biloxi. usually pretty nice, there's always a guy there with 12 tables or so selling reloading components.

Also a lot of non dealer types with tables... you can usually make a fair deal with if they have what you're looking for.

BATFE was set up at the last Pensacola show... Most of the Private sellers were asking for proof of FL residence. I expect they might do the same in MS.

Yes for sure on the handgun sales. I think a Florida resident can buy and sell long guns in or to Alabama and Georgia residents because the states touch Florida. Not sure about Mississippi. Transporting a handgun across states lines to sell to another individual without dealer involvement is I believe a felony.

If the BATFE spent the $70 for the table at the last Pensacola gun show -- they didn't do it just to hand out information. I expect their presence was a deterrent to instill proper procedures amongst the private sellers. I wouldn't be surprised if an agent or two posed as a potential buyer to see if they could document an infraction or two -- although I heard nothing about anyone being cited for a violation. I did notice a couple of hand written signs and notices place on or behind private seller's tables regarding residency requirements for buyers...

i knew the old rule was states touching you could buy a long gun, but i think i heard they changed that to any state, ill have to check and see.
